Fodor's Expert Review Sankara Nairobi

5 Woodvale Grove, Nairobi, Nairobi Area, Kenya

This stylish city hotel is conveniently located in Westlands, close to a number of restaurants and malls, although you will find all you need for a relaxing stay in the hotel itself. Striking contemporary East African art decorates both the rooms and public areas, and the rooms themselves are comfortable and modern, with panoramic views, marble bathrooms, and all possible modern conveniences. There's a patisserie, which turns into a cheese and wine bar at night, a brasserie serving global cuisine, and a New York–style steak house, plus rooftop dining next to the pool (check out the glass panel on the floor of the pool, which looks down onto the street hundreds of feet below). The Angsana Spa is exquisite, and the hotel boutique has specially commissioned, high-end souvenirs.

PROS

  • Varied dining options
  • The hotel has been beautifully designed and is an art lover's paradise
  • Great views of Nairobi's skyline from the rooftop

CONS

  • The pool is small
  • Spa treatments are expensive
  • Children are welcome but it's more business-oriented
